“The HVAC systems market is driven by growth in industrial and home automation technology, increasing demand for automated vehicle functions in the automotive sector and a surge in sensor adoption in multiple industries,” the report notes. “Additionally, advancements in the connectivity technology, Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to boost market growth in coming years. However, factors such as high regional competition, sensor pricing and difficulty in sensor-to-sensor communication techniques are some of the major hurdles expected for the market.”

Market Restrained by Competitive Pricing, Communication Challenges

The need to deliver high-performance, low-cost products is challenging manufacturers, and companies are differentiating their products by marketing them at competitive prices. This price competition, the report notes, has put pressure on manufacturers and suppliers, which have turned to market development strategies such as partnerships, new product launches and acquisitions. A further challenge is the need to ensure accurate signal exchanges between various devices. The presence of many different protocols has made integration difficult; a common protocol will need to be adopted and an effective supply chain management system must be established.
